In Year 3 we had a discussion about when we grow up. We talked about our aspirations and dreams. Also, we talked about the things we wanted out of life and how we would get there. Some wanted to be teachers and some wanted to work with animals. It was really interesting to share our own thoughts.
Bluebirds today had a great morning learning about Vikings and their methods of transport. The children were then asked to make their own 3D longships using lego pieces. They all came up with some fantastic constructions. Well done Bluebirds.
Bluebirds did a marvellous job in creating their own PowerPoint today. It was their first time using the program and so they were very excited to learn about new techniques. Mr Altariva allowed them to choose from a range of topics to create more of a buzz atmosphere and fuel their enthusiasm. Mr Altariva is so proud of you Year 3, Well done!
Bluebirds have been learning to measure the perimeter of our classroom. First we created a floor plan of the classroom. Next, we would go around the classroom systematically measuring the width of the walls with metre ruler sticks. We found out the perimeter of the classroom by adding up all the total lengths.
As an extension task, the children were asked create their ideal classroom on their plans. Well done Bluebirds, outstanding work!
Bluebirds have been creating acrostic poems for their literacy lesson. They have been learning to link topics and sentences as well as their speech marks and alliteration skills. Fantastic work Bluebirds!
Year 3 Bluebirds had a fantastic Maths lesson today. They learned about measuring units in more depth, from their previous understanding.
First they learned how to measure length in cm and metres. Next, they learned how to weight objects using different scales. They then found out the weight of objects could be measured in grams and kilograms. They all weighed themselves and found out some really exciting information. Finally, they learned that capacity could measured in ml and litres. For their task the children had to compare measurements and write down the correct answers in their books.
Mr Altariva and Mrs Sargant were amazed at the results!
Bluebirds are doing a marvellous job with their 500 words stories. They are marvellous, magnificent and just plain mad in their imagination. They all have tried their best and really thought long hard to develop their ideas and planning.
Year 3 Bluebirds have had an amazing afternoon with their French lesson. Firstly, they had to research the meaning of new words then assemble a 3D structure. The 3D structure was the Eiffel Tower. They all had so much fun and learnt lots of new words.
